Kenya Airways has called further engagement with striking pilots and advertised their jobs – seeking their replacements even as the devastating strike enters the third day.
It is not clear what will happen if the KQ call for applications fails to attract applicants – who will be expected to be members of Kenya Airline Pilots Association (KALPA).
On Monday, KALPA asked Kenya Airways management to “meet us at the table and negotiate with an open mind”.
The pilots said only 4 senior management pilots had resumed their duties – flying 2 aircrafts on the Entebbe and Mombasa routes. KALPA said 95 percent of the KQ aircrafts were still grounded.
